EXCLUSIVE: Model who wed Folorunsho Alakija's son in £5 million Blenheim Palace bash grew up on Manchester council estate with bankrupt mother and a brother convicted of drug driving

Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifa married Folarin Alakija, who is son of Africa's wealthiest woman worth $2.1 billionLavish Blenheim Palace event cost estimated £5million, had one white roses and performance Robin Thicke.

We discovered his bride Naza was raised in Manchester after her parents separated 
Naza’s mother Nooshin, declared bankrupt in 2014, lives in housing association house in Knutsford, Cheshire
Her younger brother Sam was given a six-week jail sentence suspended for drug driving having taken cocaine
Naza's new husband Folarin is an entrepreneur, investor and cinematographer who lost his first wife to cancer 

The model who married a son of the world’s richest black woman in a £5million bash was raised on a Manchester council estate by a mother who was declared bankrupt, MailOnline can reveal.

Iranian beauty Naza Jafarian tied the knot with eligible Folarin Alakija in a jaw-dropping ceremony at Blenheim Palace with a 12ft cake, one million white roses and a surprise performance from Robin Thicke.

But we discovered that while her beau, an entrepreneur, investor and cinematographer, is the heir to a $2.1 billion fortune – his 66-year-old oil billionaire mother Folorunsho is ranked by Forbes as the 14th richest person in Africa – his bride’s family is rather more impecunious.

Naza’s divorced mother Nooshin, 51, was declared bankrupt in 2014 and now lives in a run-of-the-mill three-bedroomed semi-detached house in Knutsford, Cheshire, owned by the local housing association. 

Nazanin, known as Naza, who once dated Rob Kardashian, studied Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Manchester, has a graduate Diploma in Law and has also worked as a model and marketing consultant.

However, while her mother’s financial difficulties might be awkward when talking to the in-laws, it is her younger brother Sam’s criminal record, which is the more embarrassing. 

The 24-year-old was given a six-week suspended sentenced at Stockport magistrates’ court earlier this year, after being caught by police driving through Macclesfield having consumed vast amounts of cocaine – he was nine times the legal limit.

It is an extraordinary background for 28-year-old model, who featured in an advertising campaign for Monkee Jeans, an organic denim brand and once dated reality TV star Rob Kardashian.

She was born in Iran but has spent at least the past decade living in Britain – she was registered on the electoral roll – with her mother and brother as recently as 2015, at the house where her mother went bankrupt.

After studying bioengineering and biomedical engineering at Manchester University – she also has a graduate diploma in law – she began modelling and mixing with celebrities such as the Kardashians.

She is believed to have met her new husband, a widowed father, whose first wife Chena died of cancer, in London. They got engaged in Greece and had an equally-lavish traditional Nigerian wedding at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos last November. 

New start: Naza, was born in Iran but moved to the UK when she was young. She was registered on the electoral roll – with her mother and brother Sam as recently as 2015, at the house where her mother was declared bankrupt.
